ENTREPRENEURIAL SCHOLARSHIPS: A SURE RETURN ON INVESTMENT

The college awards nearly $12,000 annually in entrepreneurial scholarships funded by private donors.

Carly Cummings, a junior in agricultural business minoring in international agriculture and entrepreneurial studies, received the most recent Pellet Family Scholarship.
